Dr Collinge

 

Dr Collinge has been a Consultant Psychiatrist since 2004. Her calm and reassuring approach often helps patients feel at ease. Following a consultation with Dr Collinge, she will suggest a treatment plan which will incorporate evidence based psychiatry and, importantly, individual preferences.

  • Alcohol and drug addiction
  • Psychotic illnesses
  • Trauma related problems ( such as Complex PTSD)

In addition to this, Dr Collinge has a medicolegal practice and is available to provide psychiatric reports for personal injury and clinical negligence cases.
